Eight-year-old Susan adores her parents,
so when they’re arrested she’s convinced the police have the wrong family.
When their son is born without a heartbeat, and complications mean Hana
will never have another child, despair sets in.
When Alex steps in to break up a fight at the shelter where he’s a volunteer,
he doesn’t expect to be offered a solution to their parenting problem.
The offer presents them with a three-year-old girl they call Susan.
The same offer, however, has some nefarious strings attached.
Hugo and Emma Webb are parents missing a child.
When a hoax bomb threats creates panic at a popular family attraction,
their three-year-old daughter cannot be found anywhere.
Their search for her is fruitless, but they’ll never stop hoping.
Five years later, Susan undertakes a school project to draw her family tree.
Her parents are not exactly forthcoming.
What are they hiding?
Susan takes her questions elsewhere.
No-one is prepared for the events that follow
as her life unravels rapidly – along with her identity.
Now the truth must be told.
But just how do you tell a child she was stolen?
I was originally planning to publish this story in the summer.
Then PitMad happened.
So I’m now querying the story to a couple of agents who expressed interest.
Wish me luck!
